Did you check for the cotton panties at Costco?
Thanks Taxy! Yes, I found them! Gray and black 6 pack, they ARE nice!

I washed 'em with the socks.

I didn't worry too much about the ones that weren't huge, since this batch will be just for me and Stirling. If I am making it for guests, I will probably slice the cabbage using the mandolin. It will take a little bit longer, but there won't be as many big pieces and they will be easier to spot, so I can slice them by hand.
That'll happen. You can't beat a FP and shredding blade for slaw, but is it worth it? I say yes.

I'm watching The Lovely Bones for the second time and cooking dinner.

Did you get the ones with lace or the ones with French cut leg holes? Or maybe that's TMI.

Just the plain cotton bikinis. They came in a little cosmetic bag.

Just relaxing, after getting the mammoth tree up and "fluffing" all the branches. Unfortunately this pre-lit 12 ft tree had a couple of un-lit branches after we got it set up, so DH had to fill in a couple of dark spots with extra lights. Now, the decorating can begin, but I don't have anymore oomph tonight ;) so there is always tomorrow and the rest of next week......not looking forward to 700 trips up and down the 10 ft ladder :( Why do I do this to myself lol!

Because it looks so pretty when it's done?

He said you could see she had a broken hip. A nurse showed up and between them and others that stopped got her stabilized. She had a nasty gash on her head and asked someone for a clean white napkin. Then gave them instructions on how to open it without contamination. There is more to the story, but he kept her from going into shock by demanding a man give over his coast to keep her warm. When the FD arrived they complimented him. The stupid State Trooper came back with the remark, "At least you don't have any outstanding warrants." Two women seriously hurt and they are worried about warrants? They never did offer to help with the victims, only the accident and how it happened. And if my son had any outstanding warrants. Sounds about right for our State Police. Gotta get that collar no matter what! The female Statie didn't like it when the local cop told her to get out of the way, she wasn't helping the victims any. And then they wonder why folks don't like to get involved. Both victims were air lifted to a hospital in Boston. And a couple for the victims.
So nice of him to stop & help, sounds like he was raised right! Hope it all turns out well.

Just got done ordering a Bed Cane for myself. Figured I'd be needing some assist to get in and out of bed after I have surgery...still no date yet, just planning ahead.

Good luck with the surgery PF. Make sure you let us know before hand so we can bombard you with positive thoughts!

Going to enjoy a little Castle (rerun) time with a kitty on my lap. Hoping for an earlier to bed for me...I've been burning the midnight oil far to late into the wee hours out of stupidity.
